Your boss gets on your nerves? We will reveal you some secrets how to avoid from it!
How not to let in the boss in your personal life.
Psychologists declare that if you will allow people to come too close to you and enter in your intimate communication area, then expect from them a responsible action. For example, if your boss constantly is listening to your phone calls, reads personal notes in your diary, then try to talk with him about this theme. Explain to the boss that it is much more comfortable to work if you are not monitored all the time, and then the work will be done much faster and more efficiently.
Avoid from the too frequent response
Of course, you should report about the done work. Just do not explain everything without a special need or even worse – account for every single work. It is better to clarify the details about reporting order immediately. Usually, the best option is a weekly or monthly report.
Imagine yourself in boss’s place
No, no, not at his desk, but in the head! Imagine that your boss is a simple man who has his own dreams and fears, and he gives reports to his superiors just like you do. We all love to criticize others, while we have not imagined ourselves in their place. Therefore, imagine yourself instead of your boss. This does not mean that you will only give orders, while others will work instead of you, because being responsible of people – it is art. Now look at your work and the department as a whole: the things you are dealing with and how they look, determine the less important and essential tasks, imagine what you would postulate to yourself, and draw conclusions – how you will deal with everything. Psychologists say that this approach will help you to better understand both, ourselves and the manager, and be sure that everyone has the right to make mistakes.
Be open as far as possible
There is no need to give all the information right away, better do it in small doses, as half of the things will get settled on their own, without your intervention. Try to avoid from misinformation and lies, it is not the best form of protection, but on the contrary, it can only indicate your helplessness and weakness. The best option – know how to listen, be silent and talk a lot at the same time, just do not tell you anything extra.
Learn to say “no” kindly
If you quite often have to stay in the workplace at the end of the day, because you did not have time to do everything, then think where the problem lies. Maybe you do other works too, for example, not your reports, or you even deliver the news items, that you should not do. In the result – the lack of free time and tiredness, but for that no one will increase the salary for you.
How to deal with everything? You want to help your colleagues. You want everybody to love you, but you also want to do your own work. Try to talk to your boss, find out what tasks are included in your direct job responsibilities, and the tasks that are not. The main thing is – do not keep silent and do not discuss these questions with your colleagues, but go immediately to your boss. Just learn to evaluate your working hours and say kindly “no”, then colleagues will respect you, and you will do everything on time.
Learn how to behave properly with your managers
What to do if you do not know how to solve big issues regarding the job? First of all, do not panic and do not go for help to your colleagues, but go directly to the boss. Only pre-prepare yourself and carefully think about what you really want to hear from him, choose the most alternative options.
Before meeting with the boss, gather all the arguments raised by a related question, evaluate all in favor and against, and learn to listen carefully.
Because, during the interview many ideas and decisions which you may be helpful can be discussed. However, it is not enough if you want to be heard – learn to speak correctly, so the boss could understand you. If something is not clear to you, then do not be shy, and immediately repeat the question and be interested in the boss’s opinion. Let the boss to decide and choose one from your offered variants. On the one hand, you will always take decisions, but the final say and responsibility – it should remain the boss’s choice.
